When adventure beckons, savvy travelers know not to hesitate. And in order to jet off to alluring destinations at a moment’s notice, adventurers will need easy-to-tote luggage. British fine-luggage brand Globe-Trotter partnered with the Luxury Collection, renowned for its hotels and resorts worldwide, to fill that demand, creating a limited-edition series of suitcases for the discerning traveler. The end result is a series of four stylish, sturdy pieces decorated with Greek-inspired whimsical designs and colorful doodles.
Conceived by creative director Sofia Sanchez de Betak, the interior of each piece of luggage showcases one of four patterns influenced by her recent stays at the Luxury Collection’s hotels in Greece, including: Santa Marina in Mykonos, the Romanos in Costa Navarino, Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens, and hotels Vedema and Mystique in Santorini. The four styles are named Mykonos, Santorini, Athena, and Messinia after their respective, popular Greek destinations.
Modeled after azure waters and white-domed houses of Greece, the blue-and-white trunks display illustrations that depict the vibrant, picturesque islands and, inside, colorful maps and highlights of each region’s attractions. Accented with touches of handmade leather trim and gold hardware, the rolling trunks come in one size (22 × 15 × 8 inches), each with a retractable handle for easy maneuvering. The accessories retail for $2,005 and are available at Globe-Trotter boutiques or online. (globe-trotter.com)
